How To Get Away With SPAM (on IBO)
An Original IBO Press Release by George Pierce

SPAM is generally defined as unsolicited emails, unwanted emails, or bulk emails. SPAM includes instant message spam, search engine spam, blog spam, Usenet newsgroup spam, wiki spam, classified ads spam, Internet forum spam, social media spam, junk fax spam, etc.

Any unsolicited email is SPAM. 

What I am about to share, is considered gray hat marketing and is technically black hat marketing.  

Use it at your own risk and understand that I do not endorse the following.

Then WHY am I sharing it? 


I hate SPAM and I am sure that everyone else does, but when you or I make a new association at IBO, it is not unusual to receive and/or send a 'thank you for the association email' through the IBO email system. 

Technically, the thank you email is SPAM, but since we have 'given permission' for the association, receiving a thank you email may be considered gray hat marketing and even OK...IF...IF the email is NOT a SPAM email. 

Permission is the keyword.  When we have permission, SPAM is no longer 'unsolicited'...BUT...SPAM is still not Good Business or Smart Business.

Ask Permission/ I Would Like Your Opinion

In sales, asking permission is a powerful tool.  It can work for you.  Here is how.

You are welcome to adapt the following for your own benefit.

Hi New IBO Associate's Name,

Thank you for being an associate.  I look forward to getting to know you.  I'm sure that we will be able to help one another.  

With your permission, I would like to ask for your help right away.  I have recently made an online decision and I have no clue if it is right or wrong.  If it is OK with you, I would like your opinion.  Please let me know, thanks in advance.

Much Success,
George Pierce
Some people put a link to one of their online businesses here, do NOT do that with this email. 

With your permission, I'd like to share with you....    is an old sales tactic that allows you to make your presentation.

I would like your opinion is an old Network Marketing tactic, usually for your warm market.

When you get an OK. reply with something like this:

Hi ____.

Thanks again in advance for your help. 

Recently,  I decide to....join, promote, etc. Your Business Name.  It looks so good that I felt that I could not say no to this opportunity.  Since I am new, I appreciate your looking at it closely and then giving me your opinion.  The link is...your url.  I look forward to hearing from you.

Much success,
George Pierce
No Link here.

This email should begin an interaction....and that is all you want at this point. 

Your new associate might reply that he/she loves your opportunity (and perhaps they have joined) or that they hate it, or whatever.   That does not really matter, the interaction is the key....NOT the sale!   HUH?

IBO is meant to be a Social Platform, so use it as one. 

You may be thinking...WHY or What is the benefit?  The benefit is that you can build relationships that will be mutually beneficial.  You will probably have many more opportunities that you can share and your new associate may have some great opportunities for you to see.  The real benefit is the networking ties and friendships that will help you in many other ways and better ways further on down the road. 

As I reread the above, I am thinking back to my newbie days.  As a newbie, I am not so sure that I would have seen that building relationships would have any value.  Of course, as a newbie, I was wrong about a lot of things. 

I have been with IBO for less than seven years, but already my relationships priceless!  When I need help, it is usually an IBO associate that comes to my rescue and I often get unsolicited help as well.   I can assure you that using IBO as a SOCIAL Platform rather than a SALES Platform will lead to traffic and more traffic and sales and more sales and so much more.

When you receive a thanks for being a new associate email (even when it is SPAM):

Reply with a Thank You for the association and and a thank you for the email and that you are thrilled to have them as your new associate, and that you look forward to a long and mutually helpful relationship. 

I suggest that you avoid any kind of sales pitch or link in your email, but you may want to add a PS.  You can get to know me better though my IBO Press Releases and then a link below your signature to your latest IBO Press Release

Hi ____,

Thank you etc.

Much success,
George Pierce

Will they go to your link?   YES!  Why am I so sure?  You were nice to them in your email and did not SPAM them, there is a certain amount of reciprocation that they now feel, and best of all, you put your link in the most read part of an email...the PS!


Allow me to remind you that any kind of unsolicited or bulk email can be considered SPAM.  (Use at your own risk).

But I know that you are aching to share your opportunity with the whole world!

So, when you contact your new IBO Associates, consider the above. 

You avoid rejection,
enhance your branding,
and build relationships,
as well as dramatically increase your chances of
getting more eyeballs to see what you have to offer. 

The above is still gray hat marketing (IMO), but certainly, it is a more polite, more acceptable, and a smarter way of spreading the word about your opportunity. 


If you are receiving SPAM through your regular email, Indiana University has a knowledge base that should be of help to you.

What you will find:

If you receive spam

Spam that appears to come from a valid IU account
Phishing scams
Nigerian bank scams or advance fee fraud schemes
Pyramid, Ponzi, or multilevel marketing schemes
Email that makes you feel personally threatened
All other types of spam

Leading on the SPAMMER

Jill has been leading on a SPAMMER for several weeks.  The SPAMMER and his family are rich, but hard times had led to their being behind on bills and taxes.  They have found a purchaser for their estate who is willing to pay 300 Million, but the estate has been frozen by the tax people. The SPAMMER needs only $12,000 to settle with the tax people and in return, Jill has been promised 5% of the sale of the estate....1.5 Million!

Jill has been stringing the SPAMMER along.  In each email, she reports that she and her husband, Joe, have been accumulating money through church fundraisers such as car washes, bake sales, rummage sales, and auctions.

Each email updates the SPAMMER on the latest charity event and tantalizes the SPAMMER by steadily reporting that the amount is growing and growing towards the $12,000 goal.  The SPAMMER, of course, replies that they are grateful but the tax people do not want to wait, so urgency is essential.

Jill's latest email states that she and her hubby have now raised, $11, 307 and that the next fundraiser is this Saturday.  She expects to have the whole $12,000 then.  She will send an email as soon as the amount is raised and then they can go over the details for the transferring of the money.

Her final email is sent Saturday evening. 

The fundraiser was a huge success, all the money has been raised!

The church pastor has convinced Joe and me to donate the money to the church.
